Boys helping out on a twelve-ton yawl. “Thoroughly good-going sea yarn” includes a Hurricane in the Caribbean.
The two chums were waiting at Greenbank Steps at Falmouth—waiting to keep an appointment with someone whom they had never seen. The expected meeting was the outcome of an announcement in the Yachting Press. The owner of a twelve-ton yawl had advertised for two young and energetic amateur yachtsmen to accompany him on a cruise to the Brittany ports. Bernard and Geoff had replied to a Box Number with the result that arrangements had been made with the owner, a Mr. Harrison, for the crew to join the yawl Norna at Greenbank, Falmouth, at noon on Tuesday morning.
